Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do movers cost in Atlanta?

In Atlanta, the top movers range from $75 to over $100 per hour. This is an estimated cost that can fluctuate throughout the year and vary depending on several factors. Factors that can impact the cost of your move include whether you need flat-rate or hourly movers, specific moving services (i.e. packing services or moving boxes) or additional movers to load your belongings. 

How do I choose the best moving company in Atlanta?

First, you’ll want to compare the best moving companies Atlanta has to offer. When comparing, check the estimated costs. When you see movers who might fit your budget, read their profiles and reviews. Keep an eye out for movers who respond quickly and arrive on time. If you’re moving within Georgia, make sure the moving company you choose has a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. You can check by reaching out to the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

How much does office cleaning cost?

Office cleaning costs an average of $200, but prices can range depending on the square footage. An office that’s 1,000 square feet or smaller costs $120 to clean. Meanwhile, spaces that range from 9,000-10,000 square feet cost $880, on average.

You can get a personalized cost estimate for your office or commercial space by contacting commercial cleaners near you.

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

Ronnie and his team are the best!!! They are completely professional and soooo nice. Words can't express our gratitude for such great people. They made our move from Atlanta to Birmingham seamless. We couldn't have asked for better movers! We suggest everyone use their services and when we move next time we will be calling them!

They listened when I expressed my concern that some items wouldn't make it through another move. They wrapped them extra well. While the move took a little longer than I had hoped, nothing was broken. We would definitely use them again.

I very rarely leave reviews....but in this instance, I couldn't go another day without expressing my gratitude for Jamal and Bear's Moving Company. Jamal was very responsive, professional and he and his partner got the job done quickly! If anyone is looking for a professional moving company that's fair in pricing and quality of work -- please consider Bear's Moving Co. 5 stars company!

Best experience I’ve had with a moving company so far! They were wonderful to work with. Responded immediately to all of my corespondents, showed up on time, got the job done in the estimated/expected timeframe. No hidden fees or charges. I would highly recommend Compass Liberty Express and plan to use them again when moving my things out of storage. Thank you!

Ronnie showed up exactly at 9 am though he said he would be at the house between 9-10. I cannot begin to express how great these guys are. Before they even started Ron went over the quote, what his realistic target was for the move and everything that he wanted to cover. Not to charge me more but to make sure my items were properly protected. Once they got started it flew by, Ron and his assistant were a whirlwind of boxes and furniture, they got the truck loaded in no time. Every piece of furniture was properly protected and NOTHING was damaged on the move at all. My house sits on a very steep driveway we sit at the highest point in the neighborhood. Ron was not deterred in the least and made sure everything went in exactly the right place and payment couldnt be easier wtih Square cash !! I would definitely use these guys again for any move and believe me my friends will be using them as well !!

The movers showed up an hour and a half late, but apparently it was because one of the movers was injured, so they needed to find a replacement last minute. Fair enough. When they did arrive, things were going well until one of them had a pretty extreme allergy attack and was incapacitated for most of the rest of the job. Not his fault that he has allergies, but maybe go into the job understanding that you're going into other people's homes who might have pets, and the furniture that has been sitting there for a while might have collected some dust over time. Because of this, the two men moving my stuff became one man for most of the time. I ended up having to help move some of the big stuff. The point of hiring movers was so I wouldn't have to do that. I went to the store and bought him some allergy medicine, but it didn't seem to do much good. Also, they dropped a stack of my vinyl records on the floor twice while trying to move them. I had requested packing service, but that wasn't communicated to the movers, so they showed up with no boxes or crates. We had to use some old boxes I had lying around my apartment from packages I had received in the past instead. I expressed all of my complaints to the management, and they did work with me to reduce the price that I ended up paying, so at least there's that. If this is a typical experience with them, then I just can't recommend them. But I do appreciate their willingness to work with me and discount the price due to the troubles. The manager was very apologetic and understanding.

If I could give them 0 stars , I would . They were very unprofessional, they ruined my furniture , their movers were not experienced, & they were dishonest . They showed up hours later past the agreed upon window . Do not hire them. They are not experienced and the manager was very rude to me when I expressed my frustrations .This was by far the worst moving experience that I ever had . I looked at their reviews online and I thought that I was picking a good company to get the job done . Apparently , they create different email addresses and write their own reviews . They take random photos of their clients furniture when they move them then they use photos and their own fake reviews . - They broke my patio set - They damaged my expensive couch - They completely tore my bed frame up - They broke my vase & my glass desk I hired them to move and pack my small two bedroom apartment. When they came to my house they didn’t pack ANYTHING so my fiancé and I ended up having to pack everything while they moved the boxes that we already had packed prior to them arriving . We were packaging as they were moving when we hired them to do both jobs . It took them two days and almost 7 hours to do a 3-4 hour small job ! Then when they arrived to my storage unit they just threw my expensive furniture , TVs , etc In there unprotected with no furniture wrap even though they said that they would wrap it . I was sick the entire time . I was downstairs with the truck while they packed it inside . I went upstairs to find that they just tossed everything in there . This is not a professional company ! They just hire random people with no background check to do the job ! Unless you want to deal with unprofessional movers that damage your things and can’t be trusted in your home . DO NOT HIRE THEM ! THEY ARE A SCAM! They charged me twice. I had to file a dispute. Luckily , the bank saw the proof and refunded me the second payment that charged me .

I used this company twice with a long distance move from Atlanta, GA to Bethesda, MD and from Bethesda, MD to Atlanta, GA, within 6 month time frame. In fact I purchased their movers lunch at whole foods and paid them a tip of a 100 dollars each. The first move they broke my mirrors and busted my bedroom night stand drawers. Stripped my canopy bed screws. They gave me $100 discount which was not a reasonable amount of damage they have cause to my furniture. The second move they waited until the last day of the contract of my job and condo rental to pick up my items. This inconvenienced me Causing me to take extra days off of work. I paid them 95% of the money after we arrived. They waited an extra week to deliver our items. The contact guy Frank Castello was rude about the entire experience and could care less about our concerns. I normally don’t write reviews but this company was so unprofessional potential customers should be aware. At one time he insulted and yelled at my pregnant wife for not agreeing with how they were treating us. They didn't accept PLATINUM AMERICAN EXPRESS and I had to get the cash from another savings account. They insisted that I go to a check cashing place to get the money buy borrowing it. This was a total mess. He did not know my wife was pregnant until I wrote this letter. His response is an outright lie. Customer service sucks! Please see attachment of their response to me. The movers wrapped our TV’s in BOXES WITHOUT ANYTHING to protect its edges and screen. I turned on my 55’ TV and it no longer works. Who ever picked our items up were not the same team who dropped it off. The gentlemen who dropped our items off were experts unloading and they unloaded and stored our items so well that I was totally impressed. Overall I would not hire them again because they are not consistent and their processes are broken, terrible communication, and they don’t value repeat customers.

To say I was sorely disappointed in my experience with Next Door Relocators is a gross understatement. Let's start with me being quoted over the phone a price for 3 guys, only to get the written quote the next morning for 2 guys for the same price. I immediately responded to the email asking about the discrepancy. Steve never responded, not even to say the verbal quote was a mistake. On moving day while awaiting the crew, who were late, Mike (the owner) called and suggested they send 3 guys instead of 2 to make my move "faster". I told Mike I'd been verbally quoted 3 guys by Steve initially, yet his written quote was for 2 guys at the same price and I hadn't received a response from him explaining the discrepancy. Mike just said he'd take care of it. Shame on me for not asking clarifying questions on what exactly that meant. I certainly didn't think that would mean a price increase and I never saw the revised quote until the movers had me sign off on the job. Again, my bad. When the crew of 3 arrived, I was skeptical from the beginning. They were too young to be working unsupervised. I say that because having dealt with movers before, there has always been an older gentleman in the crew who keeps the guys on track and helps them be more strategic with moving quickly and loading the truck. These guys REALLY needed that. They were all very nice, but they bickered at each other nearly the entire time. I felt like I was babysitting. It was hot and I was frustrated. I just wanted them to move faster, get the job done and leave. One of the movers--I know his name but won't write it--mentioned being hungry and dehydrated. He'd apparently moved someone before me, but didn't get food or anything to drink before coming to my place. My quote didn't include feeding and hydrating the guys. He went downstairs and I didn't see him again for a couple of hours. I gave them all a bottle of cold Powerade trying to help. I called Steve again to express my disappointment. My concerns were that I was paying by the hour and they told me 3 guys would move stuff faster. Yet, I only saw 2 guys working. About an hour after that call with Steve, the 3rd guy reappeared upstairs to tell me the elevator had broken. At that point, Amber from the office called the guy I'd complained about and right there with her on the phone, he asked me if I'd called the office on him. I told him I'd called because I was concerned. But I was thinking: you've got to be kidding me. How can anyone think this is ok? So, I called Steve right back and told him about that too. I even asked if they could just send another person to swap out, one who could work at the speed of the other 2 guys. Steve's solution was to inform Mike of all of this when he called to settle the bill. My thoughts: why should I? You are one company. Your'e the representative I've been working with from the company. If I call you to lodge a complaint, you should take it to the appropriate person internally, not me. But don't mind me, I just lead an operations team, so what would I know? So much more happened in between that last call with Steve and the guys finally finishing up, but it's just too much to recap. In the end, it took these guys nearly 8 freakin hours to move a 2 BR apt. Mind you, it's actually 1 full BR and the 2nd room is an office. So, it's not like they had two full bedroom sets to disassemble and reassemble. Additionally, I moved less than half a mile from my old place! At the end, Mike called to get my credit card payment, yet he was trying to get it from the mover rather than talking to me. I already felt uncomfortable with the though of saying my cc number to the mover to say to Mike, but what really pissed me off was that Mike knew I'd complained and still never asked to speak to me. He was just making sure he'd get the payment from one of his crew members. I asked the guy to hand me the phone and asked Mike didn't he think it was more appropriate to get my cc information from me directly since I was standing right there. I told him I'd pay for the move but that we really needed to talk because I was incredibly frustrated, dissatisfied and disappointed with my experience. I asked if he'd talked to Steve, whom I called twice to complain during the move. He said he had but that he didn't want to discuss it in front of the guys. Which is interesting because he had no issue taking my full payment for the crappy job his guys did. Mike said he'd call me the next day to discuss. I'm leaving this review one week later and still haven't from Mike. I did however get a voicemail from Amber at the office asking me to call her back to review my experience. Perhaps Amber didn't realize which client I am: the one that one of their movers confronted about calling the office on him while she was on the phone. In summary, this moving nightmare costs me about $1000. My review: DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY. I used Mark the Mover about 3 years ago. Even while packing when that crew arrived, the move was completed 2 hours faster than this one and costs me about $400 less. Try them...or anyone else instead. Oh and I've since noticed scratches on several furniture pieces. Recalling this experience makes me angry all over again. Don't do that to yourself. There are too many moving companies out there seriously focused on delivering quality service to deal with a company like this.
